Discover your talents and passions as you explore a range of career options in this intro to professions and careers camp. This camp is uniquely designed for teenagers, ages 13 to 17, who are starting to think about what career they want to have and who want to explore a variety of study and career options.
With the current speed of innovation and the introduction of so many new disruptive technologies, teens today will have very different careers than their parents have. Many of the jobs in the future will be in startups or in new fields that require students to have unique skills, strong emotional intelligence, good communication skills, an ability to adapt to rapid change and to think creatively and a global mindset.
This program helps students identify their core values, purpose/personal mission and skills, and then exposes them to a variety of alternative careers while also developing their entrepreneurship, leadership, and critical thinking and communication skills.
